Welcome to the site. The chap who sits next to me at work (in Bristol) comes from Lewis, although he now 'lives' near Glasgow and flies down to Bristol for a 4 day week.
I expect that Steve meant a different James but I have an opinion too: Seats can be a real problem for taller people because the Melos has the fixings for the rear leaf springs just where you want the seat to go. I never sorted that on my Melos while I had it but I think that others have found that Intatrim seats fit - they do some very narrow seats for kit cars. I bought a pair of them for my Legerra and there was loads of space, but the Legerra doesn't have the leaf springs.
